    According to § 3 Para. 1 AsylbLG, persons entitled to benefits under § 1 AsylbLG receive so-called basic benefits to cover the need for food, accommodation, heating, clothing, health care and household consumer goods (necessary needs). In addition, you will be granted benefits to cover your personal needs in daily life (necessary personal needs). Furthermore, according to § 4 AsylbLG, benefits are to be granted in the event of illness, pregnancy and childbirth. Furthermore, "other benefits" can be granted in accordance with § 6 AsylbLG if they are essential in individual cases to ensure subsistence or health, to cover the special needs of children or to fulfill an administrative obligation to cooperate.

By way of derogation from §§ 3 and 4 as well as 6 to 7 AsylbLG, § 2 AsylbLG stipulates that the Twelfth Book of the Social Code (SGB XII) applies accordingly to those persons entitled to benefits who have resided in Germany for 18 months without significant interruption and who have not abusively influenced the duration of their stay themselves.
